I purchased a 4yr old cob type a year ago, she was forward going to ride and sharp , felt that once settled had lots of potential as nice rhythmical paces although a bit rushed. from about 3 months ago she has become 'slow'. no longer as responsive to the leg not as exited out and about hacking. become quite dull to ride. has anyone else experienced a 'lull' with a horse or pony at this age due to just maturing and calming down as settled in new environment ? I am concerned this is more how she will be long term and I prefer a bit more from my rides I have taken her out to little jumps/pole clinics , hacking away from home and sponsored rides and even those she is just not 'feeling it' she is barefoot , I had her checked by farrier in case laminitis but no signs that he could see, negative to hoof test. no obvious lameness but not as exaggerated in her striding. has anyone had similar then once fitter they picked up or time of the year?
